RSU2-based Robotics Team receives $4K sponsorship from Maine-based software company - Blue Marble Geographics

Hallowell, Maine – December 20, 2019 – RSU2-affiliated robotics team Delta Prime Robotics announced on Friday that it has received a $4,000 sponsorship from Hallowell-based software company Blue Marble Geographics®. The sponsorship covers most of the team’s registration with its parent-organization FIRST Robotics®, which includes the cost of two regular season competitions and equipment such as basic robot chassis.
 
Blue Marble Geographics has supported the robotics team for the past three years, with the GIS software company’s Director of Product Management Sam Knight and Chief Technology Officer Victor Minor volunteering as mentors and coaches. In 2019, Blue Marble hired a former Delta Prime Robotics team member as its first summer intern, and hosted team demonstrations and “robot visits” at the company’s headquarters.
 
“We're very happy to support our local robotics team, and the FIRST Robotics cause,” said Blue Marble President and CEO Patrick Cunningham. “It’s important to us to create opportunities for young engineers and scientists to have hands-on learning experiences, especially in our home state.”
 
In 2012, Delta Prime Robotics became the 4473rd team registered under FIRST Robotics — a not-for-profit public charity founded in 1989 that provides accessible, innovative programs for motivating young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. While Delta Prime Robotics was registered in Farmingdale for students in RSU2 — schools in Dresden, Farmingdale, Hallowell, Monmouth, and Richmond — it is also open to students outside of the school district.
 
Since the early 1990s, Blue Marble Geographics has been a pioneer in the development of powerful and innovative geospatial software. Widely regarded for its expertise in coordinate conversion and file format support, Blue Marble’s products include Geographic Calculator, the paradigm for highly accurate spatial data conversion and advanced projection management; Global Mapper, a fully-functional and affordable GIS application; and the Global Mapper LiDAR Module, a suite of powerful point cloud processing tools.
